Tom Engelhardt of TomDispatch interview Ep 13.5 – Part 1
Danny and I are very excited to bring you the first half of our sit down with Tom Engelhardt, editor-in-chief and founder of TomDispatch, where he brings us amazing long form journalism from a huge group of writers about our national security apparatus and especially America’s endless addiction to militarism. Here, we discuss Tom’s new book, “A Nation Unmade By War“, along with his journey in creating TomDispatch, being a lifelong New Yorker who was NYC on 9/11, and how people like Donald Rumsfeld used the events of 9/11 to start and maintain the Global War on Terror. Enjoy!!!
00:40 – Sitdown with Tom Engelhardt – Part 1
The United States has become synonymous with empire and endless war, American troops sit in 70% of the world's countries, and yet, most Americans don't know that. The military is joined disproportionately by a 'warrior caste’ whom carry this enormous burden, making a less diverse force and ensuring most of society doesn't see their sacrifice. And American tax dollars, funding hundreds of billions in unnecessary spending on global hegemony, are robbed from the domestic needs of ordinary Americans. We aim to change that. Join Danny, Henri, and Keagan, three leftist combat veterans, as they discuss how to turn the tide against endless war and repair the damage America has caused abroad.
